While most ministers love to be seen with their security personnel, who help them break cues and push past others, Union Minister Smriti Irani provided a welcome break from this crass behaviour, when she coolly walked into the Starbucks Coffee Shop at Connaught Place without a fuss.
Earlier this week, Delhi-based writer Nimish Dubey posted a photo on his Facebook page, which shows Irani placing her order. Dubey wrote that this isn't just a one-off and regulars at the coffee shop have seen her make a low-key appearance several times.
"You can poke fun at her for all you like, But we have been seeing her at Starbucks time and again, She comes on her own, Stands in a queue, Politely places her order, Goes to take it herself, And leaves quietly, No fuss, no entourage, no security, There are not too many ministers like that, Ladies and gentlemen, Smriti Irani," he wrote.
No fuss, no entourage, no security...
